recently bought a ural knockoff headlight and bucket with a speedo in bucket setup for my 1980 cm400. my stock speedo no worko with it because of the size difference...im having a hard time finding an 80mm speedometer that:

1. reads MPH
2. looks old-ish (like smith's, etc.)
3. works with my honda speedo cable
4. does NOT cost $200-$400

ideas?

Yeah really simple.......

make and adapter ring to fit it in, you can use the extra landscape for LED indicators (turn, hi/lo, neutral etc)

making gauge faces isn't too hard either...

no can do, the stock speedo is bigger than the hole it needs to go into. could chop up the headlight bucket, but the hole is cut into the curvature and theres a subtle lip on it as well...thanks though. im looking at maybe just buying a ural speedo w/mph, and maybe doing a cable switch or something.
